Just a simple question..

At what FR can the FBQ operate??

I have one already running my SW's which will probably run between 2
0-80hz.
But can I add a second one to do the range from about 80-600hz??

I know a deq could do it,but I suppose I'm just trying to keep the mids out of ant extra AD/DA coversion.

I am not sure if the FBQ is the same, but the DCXs range can be extended by using a low Q filter at the low/high end of its range. Such use extends the function of such units, but is not as accurate. If used in such a way proper loop back measurement would be recommended before real world implementation.

Sure, as long as you're using an outboard amp for the mids. The only way to connect an equalizer is between the pre-amp and amp.

You'd be surprised how sonically pure the conversion is on digital gear these days, even cheap stuff like Behringer. It won't be a problem as long as you're using a good equalizer. If you notice any audible artifacts, then upgrade the equalizer.

Thanks Wayne,yes my system is active with amps for each driver.
Ok great so I can plug another FBQ into the bass driver output from my RaneAC23..:)

Cheers thanks,atm the the FBQ is doing the eq/peq and no probs so far.



Also so I don't start another thread..

Is it possible to get an extension lead for midi connection??

The one on the edirol is very short.

I use a pair of 5Mtr (in/out) leads with my USB/Midi adapter with no know issues.

Excellent thanks,just makes me wonder why people use it just for bass??
Because most people don't have separate amplification. Upgrading from a basic receiver, which is what most people have, to all the additional hardware needed to accommodate full-range equalization is a big-buck proposition, even if you buy used gear. Not to mention the required real estate in the equipment rack...

For most people with a late-model receiver, the on-board equalization is adequate or their needs, especially with the more upscale receivers.

Possibly, although most if not all musical instrument shops would also stock them. You can also use a USB extension as an alternative method, i.e., have the adapter located at the crossover instead of at the computer.
